Between the World Cup, emails, and binge-watching Netflix, the chances are pretty great that we’re spending a little too much time staring at a screen.

The Official Preppy Handbook

The Official Preppy Handbook

In the spirit of Father's Day and Generations of Style, we found this well thumbed through copy of The Official Preppy Handbook floating around the office that originally belonged to Reid's Dad, Wayne.
